Guest Post: Strawberry Mint Corn Bread from Cafe Terra

Today I have a wonderful treat for you: A guest post from one of my favorite blogs, Cafe Terra Blog. By day Terra is a food safety auditor who travels around the country checking up on kitchens from high end restaurants to jails. She has an amazing resource on her blog called the Food Safety Corner, where you can ask her any nagging questions you have, like at what temperature butter should be stored. And, of course, there’s also the amazing food on Terra’s blog. Watermelon Lime Sorbet, Gluten Free Ice Cream Sandwiches, Lime Posset with Strawberry Gelee – I swear every one of her recipes is better than the last! Today she’s sharing an inspiring recipe that I can’t wait to try. I’ll let Terra take it from here:

Hi everybody my name is Terra from CafeTerraBlog, a site where there is a recipe for everyone! I enjoy creating new recipes, and sharing old family favorites. If you have not had a chance to stop by my site, please come on over and say hi! When I was trying to decide what to make, I was inspired by a visit to a local farmers market. Who doesn’t like fresh AND local treats, right?

This recipe uses fresh corn, fresh strawberries, and even fresh mint. Whenever I make a recipe, I always think about ways you can change it up to make it perfect for you. You could use any fruit that is in season, and add in your favorite herb. This corn bread is versatile, and VERY fun!
